    Wireless-AC 7260 Ad Hoc Problem


      I have a Lenovo ThinkPad W540 with Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 Plus Bluetooth

      and the problem is I can't connect to a third party device which broadcasts ad hoc wifi network.

      This ad hoc network does not share Internet connection, it is purely to connect with this device via the dedicated application.


      I tested connection with other ad hoc networks and looks like Wireless-AC 7260 can only connect to ad hoc wifi networks which share Internet connection. If they do not share Internet connection then Wireless-AC 7260 does not set up IP properly via DHCP.


      I tried different drivers and different operating systems (Windows 7, Windows 8). Nothing helps...
